Pasta with Tequila-Tomato-Lime Sauce

Recipe by  

"An easy weeknight recipe and an interesting variation on plain tomato sauce. Clam juice adds a nice salty bite without tasting 'fishy,' and lime juice lends brightness."

This was pretty good. I would add more of the pickled jalapenos next time. Also, I put in the lime juice with the other liquid, instead of waiting til the end.

Very tasty and very easy to make. A little spicy for my taste, but good. Next time, I will probably use fresh, roasted jalopenos instead to turn the heat down.

My husband didn't care for this - thought it was too spicy. My daughter loved it! If I make this again, I'll probably use less red pepper.

I really like this recipe, it's easy and with the exception of the Clam juice, it's all standard pantry items. I will add shrimp next time to make it a more substantial meal, but I am really happy with the outcome. Thanks!
